According to Stu Paterson of Paterson Media, “Trudeau flew in at 11:46 am on a Challenger I believe. He was guarded by 35 RCMP who were very efficient. His team waited on board for a few minutes to decide if he would mingle and he did.”

Paterson says that the Prime Minister was very accessible posing, chatting and shaking hands. Trudeau was in Bruce-Grey Owen Sound riding supporting the Liberal candidate, Michael den Tandt, who had worked in the PM’s office as an advisor. The candidate is also a former editor of the Owen Sound Sun Times news outlet.

The Prime Minister chatted with Georgian Bluffs Mayor Dwight Burley, who was strongly supported in the last municipal election.
